biography

Nadja Dumouchel is currently engaged as a script consultant and tutor for several film labs such as Next Step run by Semaine de la Critique, Realness-scriptlab for African filmmakers in Johannesburg, Moulin d’Andé and European Short Pitch run by Nisi Masa. She is fully dedicated to the international art house film scene – accompanying a story’s process of gestation, its forming into worlds, words and images has become her main focus. As an independent story editor, Nadja is working with various filmmakers around the world on the development of their feature films and training international producing students on the intercultural aspects of scriptwriting (Filmakademie Ludwigsburg).

After studying visual culture in Brighton, journalism and literature in Berlin and cinema in Valencia, Nadja started her career as a programmer and commissioning editor at ARTE’s short film section in Strasbourg. She was later hired by the international sales company PREMIUM FILMS in Paris, before going back to ARTE in the feature films section in 2010, where she worked in European feature film development for five years. She is still working for ARTE on a freelance basis, currently writing a documentary series on art history.

In 2012, she trained as a story editor at TorinoFilmLab, before teaching scriptwriting at Université de Strasbourg 2013-2015 and co-founding La Scénaristerie, a development program for screenwriters in Paris, where she now lives and supports authors with feature film projects “on spec”.
